CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire is getting $14 million to support efforts to expand affordable housing.

The grants announced Friday by the state's Democratic congressional delegation come from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The money will go to a variety of projects, including those aimed at helping those experiencing a housing crisis or homelessness.

Members of the delegation said they are pleased that the money is a substantial increase — about $1.7 million — compared to last year.
